Filed under
Linux

Another thing that stood out to me is that KDE applications tend to be highly uniform in the way menu’s are arranged, and their internal logic. In Gnome-land, things tend to feel a little more erratic and chaotic. This may not be a significant issue, as most people tend to use a small set of applications, but it is worth mentioning.

To end this first view on a positive however, I am endlessly pleased that when using Empathy, the messages will pop up in a notifier window at the bottom of the screen, and you can respond to messages through the same window, rather than having to navigate to the chat window. This seems like such a simple thing, and yet if you use instant messaging heavily, it will make you wonder how you ever lived without it.

    I actually never even announced the April meetup, but we had in total 13 people showing up for the meet. We moved the meet to my office from our usual space as I wanted to use the white board. At beginning I showed some example code about how to write unittests, and how are we using Python3 unittests in our Fedora Cloud/Atomic images automatically.
